When all the preparations are finished for the holidays there is time for celebrations and we have a few House-Mouse stamps from our 2016 Holiday Catalog that share those moments.
Monica is helping a friend get ready for the holidays with a pretty red bow and there are festive concerts to attend like the House-Mouse crew are performing for their friend.
There seems to be some last minute purchases as the mice are trying out hats on the run at Muzzy’s Hats and there is always a certain amount of traveling around the holidays where Gruffies® Biggly and friend are zooming by with a load of presents to deliver.
It seems the House-Mouse and Friends can tell quite a great story for the holidays and we’ve enjoyed traveling through the week with them and sharing some great project ideas. And those projects get added to our House-Mouse Designs® Projects Pinterest board so visit and subscribe to get new ideas as projects are always being added!
Now it’s time for more fantastic inspiration from the design team today –
December is almost here and as Christmas gets closer in our sights these House-Mouse® characters and their friends are here with more preparations and creative activities to get ready for the holidays!
Muzzy, Amanda, Monica and Mudpie are baking gingerbread mice cookies and decorating them with a personal touch!
A gift for a friend needs a finishing touch and Muzzy and Monica are working all the way to the Christmas tree.
There is always a need for helpers during the holiday and Monica, Mudpie, and Amanda stepped into the role in darling elf costumes.
Let’s not forget the tradition of candy canes for the holiday and artist Amanda is making pretty striped canes in time for a sweet moment with Maxwell that is framed in candy cane sweetness.

A few feathered friends have a glittery and shimmery home in our featured projects for today’s post. Shaved Ice on Dreamweaver Regular Paste is a great festive addition to this Winter Tweet Birdhouse created by Decorative Artist and instructor Debbie Cole.
All you need is a sticky base and elements that catch the light in a room to add glitz to your projects. Here is a beautiful burst of shimmer and glitter from Spoonful of Silver and Spoonful of Snow used on a Sticky Panels sheet for a home base to Fran’s festive bluebird card.
Stop by the projects earlier this week from our design team for ideas and inspiration with our tweet set of products. We’ll see you tomorrow with more inspiration to our Winter Tweets week.
Our winter birds are getting a spotlight this week with great anticipation for colder weather projects, but Fran’s Cling Winter Tweets Stamps Set are so versatile they create a variety of friendly feathered friends.

Are we ready for some fresh fall designs? This week our team will be sharing some of their fantastic designs like the new Build A Wreath Die Cut Set in our July catalog release. There are so many wonderful ideas with this die set! Create a fall colored wreath for place setting cards or an invitation card. It would also be a fantastic wreath around a gift bag or jar. We like Debi Hammons card that is ready for the perfect sentiment as a last minute card for any ocassion.
These eyes say so much it’s hard not to think of just fall, but for this week it would be a great peek out a leaf filled frame, or on a card for dramatic effect like this awesome design by Monika Thomas.
Now it’s time to take a look at some of our designers fresh fall projects.
We are enjoying the last days of summer this week with our mischievous mice theme. During this time of year there are vacations and celebrations that any of the House-Mouse stamps would help set the stage for your handmade card and scrapbook projects.
We can imagine this Teacup Sailing stamp would be great used on so many different water themed scrapbook pages. Amanda, Muzzy and Mudpie have expertly set sail for any kind of trip even if it’s only in the kitchen sink!
Here is a sweet sailing birthday card for those seafaring folks in your life. Jennie Lin Black created a beautiful floral color theme and, wow, we love the teacup reflections, too! More details about this card can be found on our website by clicking on the image or caption below it. By the way of sailing vessels, that the sentiment on Jennie’s card is from the Mice Wishes Perfectly Clear Stamps Set that happens to have another cute mousey sailor with snug hull boat.
With so many adventures by these mice we have oodles of stamps with summer in mind. Check out these stamps on our website with projects from our design team for inspiration. Just click on the captions to get there.
